morning. we can make progress after this vote if our colleagues will cooperate with us. mr. mccain: thank my friend, and i do not object. the presiding officer: without objection, so ordered. mr. leahy:man, i call up amendment 2955. officer the clerk will report. the clerk: mr. leahy proposes an amendment numbered 2955. mr. leahy: i ask unanimous consent further reading be dispensed with. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. leahy: mr. chairman, i also ask unanimous consent that the floor privileges during this vote and subsequent votes on the bill be granted to bruce cohen, mattvergus and erica chaff he ia chavez from my office. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. leahy: this is actually a simple amendment. it strengthens the public safety officers benefit act. that's the federal death and disability program that we have for our nation's first responders who are killed or disabled in the line of duty. there'sing in -- it is nothing now this body. an earlier version of this legislation was adopted on the senate floor by voice vote in december 2001. it was adop adopted a
is the second amendment. i continue my objection to the provision. mr. mccain: may i be recognized? the presiding officer: the senator from arizona. mr. mccain: what we have here after 12 hiewrs today, eight hours yesterday and 42 amendments and many more coming in a manager's package, what we have is a situation where the senator from new york because of his passion which he just are a articulated refuses to allow the senator from oklahoma his rights as a senator, and that would be, since we have -- since we have taken up this legislation with amendments and votes with 51-vote majority in -- as applicable, we have moved through, i'm very proud to say, a very i think good process that i think all of us can be proud of. but the senator from new york because of his passion and commitment and belief, all of which i respect, will now prevent the senator from oklahoma from having his amendment considered. why? because he's afraid he will lose. the senator from south carolina and the senator from new hampshire and i have been losing all day long. and i'm passionate about that. but i woul
addressed the issue himself. yet that forced mr. mccain and other republicans to skip a closed door classified briefing on the attacks where presumably most of his questions would have been answered. the reason? well, there are no cameras in closed door meetings. for more we head to washington and congressman charles rangel of new york. good afternoon. >> hi, martin, good to be back with you. >> republican senator susan collins chided mr. mccain for his absence at wednesday's meeting. she said his request for a new committee to investigate benghazi is, and i'm quoting, not necessary. what is your assessment of mr. mccain's attacks on the president? >> i am surprised, and i'm disappointed. i think that senator mccain has earned the respect of this great country in being able to tell through his own personal experiences the enemies of the united states of america. and to a lesser extent the same could be said by senator graham. for them to see that we have been attacked by enemies of the united states, our embassy and therefore the united states is being attacked, and sunsinstead join
at 2:00 p.m. mr. mccain: inquiry of the chair, what are we waiting for? mr. levin: mr. president? the presiding officer: to get on the amendment offered by the senator from colorado. the senator from michigan. mr. levin: first, i would ask unanimous consent that my statements for the amendments be inserted into the record at this point. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. levin: secondly, i understand that senator baucus and senator march are on their -- senator murray are on their way and wish five minutes each to speak relative to this amendment. i would ask unanimous consent that between now and 1:00 that they -- that five minutes then be allocated to each of those two senators and that the amendment then still would be the pending amendment. i ask unanimous consent that we now proceed to the amendment of senator mccain, and when those two senators arrive and are recognized, that they be allowed to speak for five minutes each on the udall amendment. the presiding officer: is there objection to the request for extra time for senator baucus and senator murray? without
: the clerk will call the roll. quorum call: quorum call: mr. mccain: mr. president -- the presiding officer: the senator from arizona. mr. mccain: i ask that the quorum call be suspended. mr. president, what's the parliamentary situation? the presiding officer: menendez amendment 3230 is pending. mr. mccain: i intend to speak on that shortly. mr. levin: i note the absence of a quorum. the presiding officer: the clerk will call the roll. quorum call: the presiding officer: the senator from michigan. mr. levin: mr. president, i ask unanimous consent that further proceedings on the quorum call be dispensed with. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. levin: mr. president, what senator mccain and i and our staffs are going to attempt to do tomorrow morning and -- is that shortly after the fourth vote that is now scheduled, the fourth roll call vote, we hope to be able to announce a finite list of amendments which would need to be disposed of before completion of this bill. that's going to be our goal. and we'll repeat that goal first thing in the morning. but it's important that people k
. there was a time when i regarded mr. mccain in particular as a gentleman. i am sad that this is not one of those moments. >> joining me now with reaction from the new york civil rights coalition, michael myers, fox news contributor deneen. >> it's almost like they're running the campaign again. >> get used to more of the sexism and race card and class warfare. that's what helped obama get reelected and how he got elected initially but listen, this is all about correc credibility and accountability of susan rice. she should have known better. she misled the american people. now those on the left are trying to make this about race when, in fact, it has nothing to do with about race. if that was you or me who did that in terms of lying and not being forth right. >> excoriated. >> you would be out the door. >> michael, i guess the fact five days later, everybody else in the country knew. how did she not know. she just went in there, thank you for my talking points. i'll regurgitate them. >> well, obviously she is a flunky for the president of the united states. did i became racist and sexist by sayi
. the presiding officer: the senator from arizona. mr. mccain: mr. president, i ask unanimous consent to address the senate as if in morning business. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. mccain: mr. president, i have a resolution at the desk and stk for its consideration -- and ask for its consideration. the presiding officer: the resolution will be received and appropriately referred. mr. mccain: thank you, mr. president. this resolution calls for an establishment of a select committee of the senate to make a thorough and complete investigation of the facts and circumstances surrounding, and the response of the united states government to the september 11, 2012, terrorist attacks against the united states consolate and personnel in benghazi, libya, and to make recommendations to prevent similar attacks in the future. i send that to the desk in behalf of myself, senator graham of south carolina, and senator ayotte of new hampshire. mr. president, before i go into the need for this select committee -- and there clearly is a need because there is a huge credibility gap amongst the americ
was closer. and mr. romney did beat mr. mccain in terms of the number of ballots cast. which is either exciting or just population growth, depending on your perspective. but if somebody tells you that john mccain got more votes for mitt romney, that's not true. last one. same game round three. things people are saying about the election that aren't true, but it makes them feel better to say it any way. this guy is named dean chambers. he ran the website unskewed polls. it became famous for being hi lairously wrong about polling in the presidential race. it said that everybody else's polling assumptions were wrong and if you fix those assumptions, you would see just how much of a landslide mitt romney was going to win the election by. unskewed polls said mitt romney wins florida by four points. he wins new hampshire by two. he wins iowa by three points. a romney blowout in virginia. he's up by six. mr. romney did not win florida or new hampshire or iowa or virginia. he didn't win any of those states, let alone by the margins predicted. so it became a new measurement of wrong. there are
to the vote. the presiding officer: is there objection? mr. mccain: reserving the right to object, and i will not object. i believe, mr. chairman, that we will have a package also following this of amendments that have been cleared by both sides. i'd just like to express my personal appreciation for the cooperative and compromising fashion in which this unanimous consent agreement was entered into. i'd like to thank all parties, including the chairperson of the intelligence committee and others, and i think this will allow us to move forward and complete this legislation sooner rather than later. there's still a lot of amendments that have been filed, and at some point that has to stop and at some point we're going to have to finish up all of these, many of them are duplicative and many of them are really not particularly necessary. but we -- i think we've made a giant step forward and i'm confident we can complete this authorization bill, and we'll continue the record of now some 51 years of having completed an authorization bill. i thank the chairman for his leadership. the presiding o
of the house, john boehner, by john mccain's own bff in the senate, joe lieberman, he also disagrees with mr. mccain on this. same goes for susan collins of maine who did go to the classified briefing yesterday and noted publicly that john mccain was not there. even though it was his committee. mccain's special investigation idea was also shot down today by republican senator richard burr who said, quote, i think you've got to allow the structure we have of oversight to function and i think the intelligence committee is more than capable of handling this. in other words, the senate is getting information so maybe we should, you know, get information instead of continuing to scream on tv about not getting information. here's how you know when somebody is being disingenuous. when they demand something and then you give them that thing that they just keep demanding about and they pretend that you're not giving it to them and they just keep making the demand anyway as if it hasn't been met. john mccain obviously sees some advantage somewhere in continuing to scream on tv about the fact he's not
, it's over the attacks in benghazi. today, mr. mccain took it a step further enand said because of susan rice's role, the confusing fact, we'll talk to senator mccain in a second so president obama took the opportunity to fire back directly at the senator. >> if senator mccain and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador, who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> well, senator mccain heard that remark. 73 minutes later took to the floor of the u.s. senate to respond. >> mr. president, four brave americans died. it has now been eight weeks and the american people have received nothing but contradictory statements from all levels of our government. this president and this administration has either been guilty of colossal incompetence, or engaged in a cover-up, neither of which are acceptable to the american people. >> keeping then honest, more than
's the pathway to victory for john mccain. >> you see how all those states were blue? mr. romney's confident predictions that john mccain was going to win ohio, florida, pennsylvania, virginia, new hampshire, new mexico and thef today in 2008 were wrong in every single instance. they lost every single one of those states. even though it seemed like he seemed quite confident that they were going to win all of those states the day before the election. he didn't say like he felt they were going to win. he said they have the polling data that showed they were going to win in all those states. and they did not win in any of those states. this is just part of the way the game is played. it's just bluffing. and that is important context for understanding what's going on in these last four days of the campaign. there are patterns to how presidential elections end. some of the same stuff happens every four years. specifically, in 1992, the republican candidate was poppy bush. george h.w. bush. the day before the election that year he went and campaigned in pennsylvania. and then the next day, he lost
, they said they >> i ask for its consideration. >> the resolution will be received. mccain: thank you, mr. president. this resolution calls for an establishment of a select committee of the senate to make a thorough and complete investigation of the facts and circumstances surrounding, and the response of the united states government to the september 11, 2012, terrorist attacks against the united states consolate and personnel in benghazi, libya, and to make recommendations to prevent similar attacks in the future. i send that to the desk in behalf of myself, senator graham of south carolina, and senator ayotte of new hampshire. mr. president, before i go into the need for this select committee -- and there clearly is a need because there is a huge credibility gap amongst the american people because of the now going on eight weeks of contradictory reports, contradictory statements beginning with the president of the united states. the president of the united states, on the day of the -- on september 12, went to the rose garden and stated that he opposed terrorist attacks. and then that ev
, but there are signs she is making sure she is well positioned for the future if she and mr. mccain lose. zen days before the '08 election it became clear whatever they were saying about how confident they were that they definitely were going to win, the plans republicans were making and the way they were positioning themselves, including to the press, indicated otherwise. that was october 28th, 2008. seven days before election day. now this past week it's anonymous paul ryan loyalists speculating about all the wonderful things paul ryan will do after mitt romney and he lose this election on fuse. then this past weekend a possible case of revenge for the loose lipped comments to the a.p. about paul ryan's post mitt romney future. check this out. this is amazing. this is from politico.com and kudos to them for getting it. campaign insiders say chris christie was actually mitt romney's first choice for the republican ticket. people involved in the election process said the campaign believed no one would be more in depth and persuasive at delivering romney's message. advisers thought christie would e
and legislative gifts to minorities in obama care and some of the other things. the latest thing with mr. mccain and lindsay graham saying they were going to do anything to block ambassador rice from becoming secretary of state. and we're headed toward the fiscal cliff. how do you feel about that? >> nothing has changed from the election. you have the same players and same breakdown of the government. if anybody thought we were going to have big change, that may have been optimistic. >> what i think is interesting, though, is paul ryan has disappeared from the scene. he was of course one of the biggest folks -- biggest spokesperson for the fiscal cliff. >> the urban people that turned out again. class war in another way. guys, get it together. like howard. >> weather wise, clouds out there. temps around 50 with a mix of sun and clouds today. tomorrow 54, more sunshine. saturday and sunday look okay now. maybe a shower late sunday night into monday. monika? >>> on the northbound side of 95, at least the accident in woodbridge is gone, but here's a look at the delay. a little further north it's ed
. the presiding officer: is there objection? it is so ordered. mr. mccain: mr. president, i just want to say all of these amendments have been cleared on our side. the presiding officer: is there okay? so ordered. the senator from michigan. mr. levin: i would ask unanimous consent that dr. jim malakowski, an air force fellow assigned to the office of senator conrad be granted floor privileges for the remainder of the debate on s. 3254. the presiding officer: is there objection? so ordered. mr. mccain: i move to reconsider the last vote. a senator: are we in a quorum call? a senator: mr. president? the presiding officer: the senator from new hampshire is recognized. ms. ayotte: thank you, mr. president. i want to talk this morning about an amendment that i had intended to offer but i'm not going to be offering today because there are -- there is an important portion of the house armed services committee that covers my concerns, and that was the amendment that i had drafted that is cosponsored by senators lieberman and collins, and i appreciate their support. it would be to establish an east coast
, i -- the presiding officer: without objection, so ordered. mr. mccain: i thank my colleagues -- i think my colleagues and i who have been here for a while remember one of the more moving experiences. that was the signing of the disabilities law on the white house long. bipartisan members of the disabled community were there. the president of the united states, george herbert walker bush, and so many others. but also one of the prime individuals that was largely responsible was our beloved leader at that time, bob dole. a man who epitomized, in my view, how a disability can be overcome and go to the highest levels of american government. i freely admit that i love bob dole, i listen to him, i appreciate his leadership. i think the majority leader would agree that we appreciate his bipartisanship during a great deal of his time. i hope my colleagues would, before deciding to vote, at least listen to the letter that was addressed to all of us by senator bob dole. as you may know, tomorrow the senate -- that we received yesterday. as you may know, tomorrow the senate will vote on crpd
that mr. romney received even fewer votes for president than john mccain did back in 2008. turns out that is not true. it may have looked like that on election night or on the day after the election. but millions of votes aren't counted right after the election. it takes days and even weeks after the election until you get all the vote in. the fact is that president obama did beat both of these candidates pretty easily. neither was a close election. but mr. romney was closer. and mr. romney did beat mr. mccain in terms of the number of ballots cast. which is either exciting or just population growth, depending on your perspective. but if somebody tells you that john mccain got more votes for mitt romney, that's not true. last one. same game round three. things people are saying about the election that aren't true, but it makes them feel better to say it any way. this guy is named dean chambers. he ran the website unskewed polls. it became famous for being hi lairously wrong about poll iingn the presidential race. it said that everybody else's polling assumptions were wrong and if you
the president know? when did he know it? what did dough about it? >> your reaction to mr. mccain there, julian. >> i think, first of all, just to respond to how the president dealt with it, i think if there's a headline coming out of the press conference today with the president, it is this, no more mr. nice guy. that was the message on the fiscal cliff. that was clearly the message to-o susan rice. john mccain used to have a lot of respects from democrats, including myself. i think that has all but evaporated. john mccain happens to be wrong on the allegations he's making. the comments susan rice made four days after the benghazi attack were perfectly and entirely consistent with the intelligence that she was getting from the cia. when we believed that the attacks were a spontaneous protest and reaction to the video. what we've learned since then was that two things may have been happening. one, the spontaneous protests could have been occurring while an al qaeda-like organization was also planning an attack and trying to take advantage of the unrest that occurred as a result of the video. so
to the truth. mr. mccain: will the gentleman yield for a question? mr. graham: yes. mr. mccain: one of the most salient points of this whole scenario was five days after the attack when the ambassador to the united nations went on all sunday shows to allege that this was a spontaneous demonstration triggered by a hateful video. those talking points that the ambassador used didn't come from the c.i.a., is my opinion understanding. but it came from the white house. who in the white house, who? was it the president of the unit states? was it one of his people? who was it that gave her talking points that iicated something for which there was no basis in fact, certainly not after five days. and did the president ask about this situation? did the president of the united states say wait a minute, is she going out there when -- right after on the program that i was on, "face the nation," th president of the libya national assembly came on right after and said this is an al qaeda attack, this is a terrorist attack. and then for days afterwards, the president of the united states goes out and including
-- from arizona, senator mccain. mr. mccain: mr. president, i would like to express my appreciation for senator lieberman and senator collins' hard work on this. we have had some disagreements. i still believe that if we could have, say, five amendments that could be voted on and debated, i think we could move forward with this bill. i really believe that. and i would like to see if possibly even after -- right after this vote if we could reach some agreement between the leaders and ourselves that we could say that there would be five pending amendments and perhaps we could go ahead and debate and vote on those. i, again, think we have some very significant differences, but i -- the fact that the chairman and the two cochair -- whatever the hell they call themselves -- have worked incredibly hard on this issue, and they deserve debate, and i hope that they would understand that we are seeking, like, five amendments. mr. lieberman: mr. president, i ask unanimous consent that just in the remaining time, i really appreciate what my friend from arizona has said, and i not only join him
the alternate reality. >> is mr. mccain operating in reality? >> no. you're not operating in reality if you're reading the information we already have that's already available and you're still whipping up conspiracy theories and weaving tall tales out of nothing. as toure pointed out, senator mccain, how about you actually be in the hearings to hear what's been going on and happening instead of standing in front of the cameras and beating poor susan rice to death. it makes no sense and it's irresponsible. >> it's clear that john mccain is all about sour grapes right now as we often say on our show "the cycle" which airs at 23 o'clock on msnbc. >> you're not come on here again for doing that. toure, and john thnathan capeha thank you. stay with us. >> he never gave a reason why to vote for mitt romney. barack obama gave at least a reason why to vote for him to his supporters, albeit wrong. governor romney -- >> no, the reason wasn't wrong though. mr. obama said quite clearly, if you vote for me i'm going to give you money. am i wrong, miss schaefer, am i wrong about this? [ woman ] ring. rin
's rejecting mr. mccain's request for a special committee. >> right. >> congressman, the way congress works, he has -- he in the senate, even though you're in the house but he in the senate has his work cut out for him if the majority lead ser denying that, wouldn't you say? >> there's no work for him to do. he doesn't have anything cut out. the majority leader is the one who will make the decision. there's no way that senator mccain can override that. it seems that ryan's right. this is very, very possibly and we don't know what's in mccain's mind, but this is a fight to stay relevant on his part. when people try to stay relevant, sometimes they say the whackiest darnedest, can tank russ and wrong head of things. he's on that tangent right now. >> thank you both for your time this evening. both of you have a nice weekend. >> you, too. >> take care. >> ahead, this republican chairman in maine is apologizing after complaining about "dozens of black people" voting. but his apology actually made it worse. and say good-bye to be this friendship. chris christie speaks on mitt romney's gifts comment.
speculation. unworthy of their offices as senators. there was a time i regarded mr. mccain added gentleman. i'm sad this is not one of those moments. here we see this great center rushing off to a press event rather than going to a briefing on the facts in his zeal to vent and rant as a result of the elections. the comments that she is not so bright, not just for the, these comments beg the question when you look at her resonate, most of which you heard from our distinguished delegate eleanor holmes morton. we are asking for them to walk back those comments and joining me here -- i will stop my two- page comments at this point. i will call upon my good friend, the just-elected chair of the congressional black caucus, representative marsha fudge from the 11th district of ohio. >> thank you very much. i will be brief as well. when you lose, you get angry. when you lose you are disappointed. do not take it out of someone who did not have anything to do. blame yourself. how do you say that a person with susan rice's background is not qualified? i wonder what your qualifications are for your job.
better president in the second term than i was in the first. jonathan karl? >> thank you, mr. president. of senator john mccain and senator lindsey graham both said they want watergate style hearings on the attack in benghazi. they said if you nominate susan rice for secretary of state, they will do everything they can to block her nomination. i would like your reaction to that. would those threats deter you from making a nomination like that? >> i'm not going to comment at this point on -- various nominations that i will put forward to fill out my cabinet for the second term. those are things still being discussed. let me say about susan rice. she's done exemplary work. she's represented the united states and our interests in the -- united nations with skill and professionalism and toughness and grace. as i have said before, she made an appearance at the request of the white house in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to
wonder if senator mccain might have a comment on that. mr. mccain: can i just say i thank my dear and old friend from michigan. i was recollecting that he and i have now worked together for over a quarter of a century. but far more important than that this legislation and how we handle it, i say to all my colleagues, can be a model for how this body should do business. take up a piece of legislation, have amendments and debate, and move forward. and if that requires long hours and even occasionally a friday or even more, then i think our colleagues should be prepared to do that. we are not sent here for a three-day work week. we're sent here to do the people's business. i'm not proud, madam president -- and i won't point anybody's fingers at -- i won't point fingers at anybody, but it was judged by historians, the last session of congress, as the least productive since 1947. now, maybe senator levin and i were around in 1947 but we don't remember exactly what happened in those days. but the fact is that when we are looking at basically continuous gridlock day after day, week after week, m
i was in the first. jonathan karl. >> thank you, mr. president. senator john mccain and senator lindsey graham both said today they want to have watergate style hearings on the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi and said if you nominate susan rice to be secretary of state they will do everything in their power to block her nomination as senator graham said he simply doesn't trust ambassador rice after what she said about benghazi. would those threats deter you from making a nomination like that? >> first of all, i'm not going to comment at this point on various nominations i'll put forward to fill out my cabinet for the second term. those are things that are still being discussed. let me say specifically about susan rice, she has done exemplary work. she has represented the united states and our interests in the united nations with skill and professionalism and toughness and grace. as i've said before, she made an appearance at the request of the white house. in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her. if senator mccain and s

had received, and the to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> jennifer: preach it mr. president. still, senator mccain is not backing down. after the president spoke mccain took to the fight to the senate floor. >> if the president thinks that we are picking on people, he really does not have any idea of how serious this issue is. i'm an united states senator. the american people are owed an explanation, and it's our duty to try to get that explanation for them. >> jennifer: yes, you are an united states senator and he is the united states president and you know, the american people might want an explanation why you're spending their time attacking somebody who the administration has not even nominated yet. the white house has proceeded though with other appointments. so today the white house sent the senate eight federal judiciary nominations adding to the 35 that are still waiting to be confirmed. joining me now for more on the story of filibustering is the "huffington post" political report mike mcauliffe. welcome inside "the war room"." >> thanks for having me on. >> jennife
negotiations. we now call upon senator mccain. >> thank you, mr. chairman. let me thank our distinguished witness for his many years of impressive service in uniform. let me start by saying a word about general john allen, our commander in afghanistan. we had expected him to testify today on his confirmation to be supreme allied commander. while the committee await the conclusion of the inspector general investigation, i continue to believe that general allen is one of our best military leaders and i continue to have confidence in his ability to lead the war in afghanistan as well as to serve in the post for which she is now being nominated. general dunford, but a grateful for your willingness to upset this appointment in afghanistan. i also believe if you are confirmed you will have a difficult road ahead of you. i think our mission in afghanistan is at a very serious and troubling crossroads. with the recent reporting, it is deeply worrisome. over the last few months, our enemies have been rather successful in carrying out its insider attacks that have killed and wounded many american t
